Accessibility Policy

We have designed this site to be as accessible as possible and we use best endeavours to adhere to the "A" compliance standards of the Web Accessibility Guidelines, published by the W3C group, and the UK Government's guidelines in the Disability Discrimination Act (1995). 

Altering Font Sizes

The website has been designed to appear best on a monitor set at a screen resolution of 1100 x 768 pixels and above. Fonts, text sizes and colour are set with the use of Cascading Style Sheets (CSS). These can be overridden with your own stylesheet by configuring your browser settings appropriately. If you are using the Internet Explorer for Windows browser, select the 'Tools' menu, then 'Internet Options'.

The 'Accessibility' tab has an option for selecting your own stylesheet to use. The 'Safari' browser for Apple Mac permits you to choose your own stylesheet by selecting 'Preferences' from the 'Safari' menu, selecting the 'Advanced' tab, and altering the 'Style Sheet' property.

Some visitors may find it necessary to increase or decrease the size of the text appearing on screen. Internet Explorer users can use the 'View' menu, highlighting the 'Text Size', then selecting the appropriate option.
